In the video, that was 150mph at about 70% throttle, on the limiter. Geared/propped for key west and semi rough water. We were extremely tempted to change the gear ratio and rip a 170mph+ run because it would've easily, but we decided to wait until after KW.

Motors are Outerlimit built 509ci (for Super Vee) setup at 1300ish, extremely conservative.

Yup, and since we got a few days of testing and racing around the bouys, were actually prepared this year! No more last minute stuff.

Ya when we put the boat on the trailer, someone that lives right there came up and said, holy crap, you guys are lucky that its high tide! When we went by, you could see the rocks on the bottom!

Maybe after KW, this boat is more than capable of it. As of now, winning KW is the only goal.
